HMS Networks has announced Anybus CompactCom IIoT Secure products for both EtherNet/IP and Profinet, including a new complete security platform for IIoT communication over OPC UA and MQTT.

The Anybus CompactCom range enables device manufacturers to connect their industrial devices to all major industrial Ethernet networks, and IIoT connectivity is supported via OPC UA and MQTT. However, increased IIoT connectivity calls for next-level data security solutions to ensure that data from automation devices reach the cloud in a secure way.

HMS has therefore released a ready-made embedded security device and software that enables fully secure communication from devices in the field to the cloud. CompactCom IIoT Secure features security hardware, secure boot, certificate management and encryption, as well as secure OPC UA and MQTT communication. The release focuses on CompactCom for EtherNet/IP and Profinet with OPC UA and MQTT connectivity and includes a number of software and hardware elements.

In the software, encryption is provided for data sent to the cloud using secure OPC UA channels or uses encrypted traffic via MQTT over TLS, while secure boot functionality ensures the usage of HMS firmware only. Authentication is provided through certificate management and secure access and file transfer over TLS using HTTPS and WebDAV.

In the hardware, a security chip ensures full product integrity and identity, and the solution is said to have been thoroughly tested from a cybersecurity point of view by HMS. Pre-conformance testing has been performed for the networks in question, facilitating customer product certification.
